The rivers are now closed until September 1 after a very good late autumn season. It is also encouraging to see the rivers flowing well now that we are into the spawning season.

Regarding the stillwater fishing in June 39 rods took 61 trout of which the largest two were both 2,8kg, one coming from Simon’s Dam and the other from Trealvan 2. The dams of course are full after the excellent late rains even though some are being used to irrigate pastures.

Restocking of dams was carried out from March to May with 25cm fish being put into dams with a major bass infestation, 20 cm fish in dams with a minor bass problem and 15 cm fish in bass-free dams.
